School Programs

Come to the Barnes, or we’ll come to you. Our programs will nourish your students’ imaginations and serve your curricular goals.

Teacher Resources

Looking closely, listening openly, sharing observations—a pre-K–12 lesson with the Barnes Foundation encourages students to have a curious, creative voice. Use the resources below to extend your students’ learning and sign up for teacher emails  to stay informed of new opportunities.

Art of Math Challenge

Students use math strategies to design and build a 3-D scale model of a painting from the Barnes collection. They collaborate as a group to build the model and write a description of their mathematical process. The competition culminates with a display of all submitted models at the Barnes’s STEAM-themed PECO Free First Sunday Family Day on March 3, 2024.
